It’s National sewing machine Month! I’m excited as a result of i really like MY SERGER!! but, this hasn’t invariably been the case. Before operating with Baby Lock, I worked with a distinct whole and had a touch of a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine. OK, that’s not utterly honest… it absolutely was a hate/hate relationship! i used to be ne'er extremely able to thread it systematically and use it to its full potential, thus it primarily simply Sabbatum around and picked up mud.I have an idea of making a Serger's sunglasses box with a sewing machine.
Once I switched to Baby Lock, my sewing machine Sabbatum within the box for months. i used to be terrified!! Finally, my mama came around and same, “We are threading this!” She is sort of the sewing machine knowledgeable and not intimidated by any machine. we have a tendency to rib it along and had such a lot fun exploring all of the various stitches and that i was fully amazed by however straightforward it absolutely was to use! i used to be instantly galvanized and it wasn’t long before I started victimization it on a daily basis, teaching and singing the praises of Baby Lock sergers way and wide! because it seems, i actually didn’t perceive the composition of sewing machine stitches, the “hows and whys” of all of the threads, levers and dials.
In honor of National sewing machine Month, i've got a fun, fast project to share with you. I want to make a sunglasses case.you'll produce it victimization scraps of material, your sewing machine and one amongst my terribly favorite feet, the Cording Foot! it's thus onerous to search out the right twine to match comes, however fast and straightforward to make on the sewing machine. The Cording Foot features a groove on the side for the twine to ride in because the machine finishes the perimeters of the coated cord. attempt it once and you'll be adding twineing to everything! we have a tendency to are operating with bias material as a result of we'll flip a corner with the cord. If you're stitching curves or a corner, bias cut may be a should.

The seamed aspect of the twine ought to be even with the raw fringe of the material.Place below twineing foot and fasten cord to 8” fringe of exterior piece.When you get near the corner, trim seam allowance of twine at a forty five degree angle, flip twine around corner (away from sewing machine blade!!) and stitch straightaway the sting of the material.Rotate material, position twine on 9” fringe of exterior material and place below cording foot. fabric twine to fabric continuance the identical method at the corner.Attach twine to second 8” fringe of exterior piece and take away from machine.Layer lining piece on high of unsmooth exterior piece with right sides along.Attach to (2) 8” aspects and (1) 9” side victimization the cording foot.Turn right sides out through un-sewn bottom edge and press.With exterior aspect facing up, place on a flat surface.Fold one short come near toward center, then fold second short come near toward center. *Tip: This step permits you to customise the dimensions of your spectacles case.
